Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

Jesus did not come down from the cross to retaliate against those who were mocking him. He gave his
life to forgive them and each of us. In families the angry word easily flies, fueled more by fatigue and
frustration than by a deliberate desire to hurt. Most often we don’t even realize the impact. In our
families, pray for God’s help and seek forgiveness rather than retaliating our holding on to resentment.
Please pray for our Sick especially: John Baylock, Joseph Benear, Betty Bartel, Jack
